la vega is live at nasa aims in mountain view where people gathered. good afternoon, janine. >> reporter: good afternoon. they were showing a feed of this. now it's just a recording of what it looked like. in the last 40 minutes it came as close as it would to the dearth. just to give you an idea how big it is, we're told it is as big as the size of this entire building, half a football field. on the screen, the asteroid doesn't look that spectacular. it looks like a small dot of light. these are pictures of the astroid being scene from an observatory in australia. it's 150 feet that's been dubbed 2012 da-14. scientists say there's no chance it will hit the earth. space enthusiasts came to watch the asteroid flying by as well as nasa scientists commenting on the significance. we spoke to a nasa expert and a viewer about the asteroid. >> it's coming very close and that gives us a wonderful opportunity to study it up close. and so we can learn a lot more about these types of objects. in terms of its scientist significance, there's depreleft over -- debris left over. >> i think
field will pass 17,200 miles above the earth. traveling about five miles per second. but slow down. nasa says there is absolutely no danger. >> it's not going to cause earthquakes, it's not going to cause any climate change. >> reporter: da-14 was first discovered by amateur astrono r astronomers last february in spain. since then, nasa has been plotting its path and is certain there will be no impact. its closest approach expected to be near indonesia at 2:24 p.m. eastern on friday. images have already been captured on high-powered tell scopes in australia. >> you won't be able to see it with the naked eye. with research and a decent telescope, you have a shot but your best bet may be to do what a lot of people around here will be doing, monitoring the nasa feed online. as it gets closer, nasa's powerful gold stone deep space communications complex will be taking radar imagery, research that could help scientists avoid disaster in the future. back in 1908, a smaller meteor hit in a remote region of siberia, destroying the landscape for hundreds of miles. and scientists blame the dinosa
planet. it happened in the past hour, nasa said the meteorite in russia had nothing to do with the asteroid, about the size of half a football field. joining me, astronomer david dundee. the question is, as i have just answered, there was nothing to do with the two of them one is more common than the other. meteorites in the sky of russia coming down. how rare is that? >> well, meteorite impacts happen all the time. the earth picks up tons of debris every day but it's usually in the form of dust and smaller objects. one the size of what we saw in russia is a once in a decade thing. last time this happened was about ten years ago, over in the pakistan, india region of the world. but the two objects are totally unrelated and one of the other big things to consider is that you're separating the two events by 14 hours. remember, the earth is hurling around the sun at 19 miles per second so we're in a different neighborhood than weapon the meet -- when the meteor came in in russia. >> that's interesting. everything's moving at once. how fast was this thing going? >> the top sea

apparently unfounded. nasa is using radar and other technology to study how the asteroid behaves, including its rotation rate, its composition and how it's impacted by the earth's gravity. the idea is to learn enough to prevent cat as it sfroe fee from it threatening in the future. >> we're going to get a lot of information about the asteroid. we're interested in its future motion, whether or not it could come back, whether it threatens the earth. >> reporter: the odds are either this one or another will be back. an asteroid impact the earth about every 120 years on average. it will be visible in the rthernemisphere this evening if you have access to a telescope. for now it's on its way away from the earth out into outer space harmlessly rotating -- or resolving -- excuse me. harmlessly rotating -- i can't even think of the right word. orbiting the sun. harmlessly at least for now, jim. >> casey, thanks very much. we appreciate it. ? or gal lat particular news, a meteor lit up the skies over eastern russia. the blinding light was followed by a series of deafening explosions. listen to this.
bomb dropped on hiroshima in 1945. no wonder nasa is keeping a closing watch for anything like it headed our way. at this moment, that near miss asteroid is now on its way out of the earth moon system. at 4 a.m. tomorrow, it will head outside the orbit of the moon. you can't see it without a powerful telescope. the magnitude is just about 7.4 well beyond naked iviesibility. but they will have telescopes at nasa you can watch it online. in the meantime, elizabeth, i have to tell you, what an extraordinary coincidence. we are sitting here waiting for this big near miss asteroid and then the real thing actually smashes into russia and it doesn't only smash into russia. it smashes as the biggest fall in 100 years and that last one in tunguska in 1908 was only 3,000 miles from this one. that's the longest astronomical hole in one you can possibly imagine. >> the video was incredible. >> reporter: incredible. >> i want to ask you, like, how often does this sort of thing happen asteroids and meteorites? how often do they come this close to earth?

. bill: according to nasa, 100 tons of meet toors of gravel and dust hit the atmosphere and the earth every single day. the smaller strikes what we saw in russia happen ten times a year. that's new. scientists believe a strike by a meteor six miles across may have been responsible for extinction of the dinosaurs 66 million years ago. in case you're wondering on a friday have something to do over the weekend you mentioned the asteroid talking about past several days. they say there is no connection between that and this meteor. we'll talk to scientists throughout the morning. heather: a lot of experts. bill: meantime, six minutes past, the nightmare is finally over. what a slow crawl this was. thousands of passengers cheering the end of a cruise ship horror scene. touching land and kissing it like the pope. the carnival cruise triumph docking last night in mobile after putting what passengers through what they call disgusting conditions. now they say they are just happy to be home. who can blame them. >> i feel great to be off the ship and just being on land and, i get to see my family
are in a higher orbit than that, but unlike the russian meteor, nasa did see this space rock coming. >> nasa's currently studying about 9,000 of these near-earth asteroids. about 1,800 of them are fairly large and those are of very particular interest to us. >> now, overnight a bright flash was spotted streaking above the bay area sky. you might have seen it. and as the sky lit up, so did the phones in our newsroom. e-mails and tweets came pouring into kpix5. check that out. people concerned about a streak of light in the sky, and this youtube user posted this video of what may be a bright blue flash over the peninsula. we haven't been able to confirm the accuracy of that video, but, again, it was posted on youtube overnight from santa clarita to fairfield, facebook and twitter users reported seeing some type of flash just before 8:00 p.m. and nasa tells us there's no connection between the three of them, it was simply a cosmic coincidence. now, brian, you study these sorts of things. what's going on? it was kind of weird in 24 hours we saw all this. >> i

't happen, nasa assures us, is this asteroid and, oh, yes, it has a name, called da 14, they say it will not hit earth. still, you cannot ignore the buzz around this out of this world event. so we have this whole team of reporters for you and analysts to bring you this historic moment. we have a so-called asteroid hunter, former astronaut, coming on live this hour and next to talk about really what will be a historic moment as 2012 da-14 brushes by us earthlings. that will start just about ten minutes from now. right now, i want to go straight to casey wian, live in pasadena, california, nasa's jet propulsion laboratory. and i imagine the excitement is palpable. they're tracking the asteroid. tell me where it is now. >> reporter: well, it is over australia, brooke. they are very excited here at jpl. it is a very, very big day. they have been tracking this asteroid for nearly a year. today is the day it is going to get closest it is going to come to the earth as you mentioned, 17,200 miles. and right now, it is coming from the southern hemisphere, approaching the earth, basically
them. so nasa is very good the at finding the much larger ones. but these smaller ones we as humans have not put a lot of effort into it. at the planetary society, we have people that are interested in it and we found this one. >> i want to bring in jason carroll, at the new york museum of natural history. tell us what you're learn building this huge astroid that will get very close to us today. >> well, let me give you some perspective. this meteorite is just about roughly the size of a car, i would say. da-14 which will be swinging by the earth later on this afternoon is about half the size of a football field. so much, much, much larger. and it will be traveling at a rate of about 17,450 miles per hour. that's something like 4.8 miles per second. so it's traveling at an incredible rate. weighs much larger than the meteorite you see behind me here. it will pass by at it closest point about 2:24 p.m. eastern standard time. if you're in indonesia, that is your best vantage point to see. it will be dark there at that particular time. but if you have a telescope, you should be able to
, it was the sonic boom that caused the damage. now, that's the only old of this world story today. nasa says an asteroids half the size of a football field will miss earth today by 17,000 miles, that actually is very, very close. it's the closest known fly by for a rock of that size. it will pass inside orbitting satellites. don't worry it will not hit the earth. we are relybly informed. democrats continue to push, tax the rich. the latest pitch in 54 billion dollars brand new taxes on the rich and national review columnist joins me next and back on the opening bell which will be interesting this morning, in just a moment. my new hearing aids instantly changed my life - i feel so much younger. my husband has his confidence back. and he can enjoy the laughter of our grandkids again. i can have fun with my friends again. feeling isolated? ready to reconnect? the aarp hearing care program provided by hearusa can help. call hearusa at ... for a free hearing check-up. plus, receive a free $50 dining card when you get your free hearing check up. aarp members receive a 20% discount on breakthrough
